Here's how the list should have ended instead of a two-term minority government and a GREEN government.

 After the Abdication Crisis, Baldwin planned his retirement. The chance death of Neville Chamberlain scuppered his plans of a smooth transition and factional open warfare broke out among the Tory ranks as to who would gain the favour of the Men In Grey Suits. Eventually, the Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden attained the premiership after his emergence as a compromise acceptable both to the Churchillites and those who would not permit Churchill himself anywhere near 10 Downing Street.
 Combined with political developments in France favouring intervention, Eden presided over the strangling of Nazism in its cradle through the Austrian War of 1938-1940. Having proved wrong the voices of appeasement in his own party (a process which involved ditching the National Liberals), he went to the country early and with a short victorious war and an economic recovery to his credit, won a majority for the Conservatives in their own right.
 Eden's popularity continues with warming relation with Europe and the United States. The economic recovery turns into a full 'boom' period as Eden is credited with the so-called 'Fabulous Forties'
 Eden remained popular, his record as Prime Minister being outstanding. However, other members of the Conservative Party became increasingly malcontent, seeing his unprecedented time as PM as strangling their own ambitions. And Edens own health began to fail, as the Empire began to slowly unravel, as nationalists in Africa and Asia emerged.
 With Eden's health failing, Butler persuaded him to resign in 1955, he won on Eden's popularity.
 In what is acknowledged as no fault of Butler's, Labour wins a majority of 70 seats under a program of keeping with Tory spending for at least four years and maintaining Imperial connections, but an old idea by the deceased Chamberlain's father is being brought back as Australian Professor Enoch Powell re-introduces the idea in modern politics.
 Gaitskell dodges a health scare and leads Labour to a similar result at the 1965 election.
 Gaitskell's heart condition resurfaces and after a surprise heart attack, he is forced to resign. His protégé handily wins the ensuing leadership election, the first time Labour MPs have directly elected a Prime Minister.
 Crossman proves to be a very popular Prime Minister, a new young face for the ageing Labour Party. In other news, the Conservatives have a new leader, his name is Heath, Edward Heath.
 Despite a booming economy akin to the boom in the Empire of Japan (especially with their Korean manufacturing boom in high gear) Heath wins a small majority on the back of years of Labour victories.
 Heath's small majority is reduced to a minority. The Tories form a coalition with the Liberals.
 The coalition falls over disagreements regarding decolonisation. While the Tories favour a "stay the course" path in regards to development and eventual independence, the Liberals push more for high investment in the various African colonies and followed quickly by independence within the Commonwealth as a whole. The argument comes to a head over the decolonization of Kenya, and Labour wins the subsequent election.
 Foot is forced to resign after contracting lung cancer following a return to smoking to cope with the stresses of being Prime Minister. Deputy Prime Minister and Home Secretary Roy Hattersley is the unanimous choice to take over after impressive performances with regard to handling immigration and lowering crime figures.
 Black Wednesday permanently damages Hattersley's reputation and he proceeds to lose the next elections as the Tories steal a (very) slim majority.
 Scandals and corruption within the Labour party further erode their image. The resulting collapse in Labour votes results in a much increased majority for the Tories and a significant gain in Liberal seats. The Commonwealth of East Africa gains full independence and sits on an equal plain to the UK, Australia, Canada, South Africa and New Zealand in the Commonwealth.
 Heseltine wins again but he is growing unpopular among his own party. The Liberals displace Labour as the Opposition and they are gathering momentum ...
 Heseltine, though considered a very good PM falls. Labour revives against the Liberals to an extent. Despite the Conservatives winning the most seats (240) infighting and a leadership election allows Labour and Liberal to form a coalition. It is a very equal thing, though Labour is the dominate party by a few dozen seats.
 The coalition breaks over how to deal with the financial crisis, Labour do a surprisingly good job governing as a minority. They manage to produce another hung parliament with Labour getting the most seats.
 Liam Fox leads a no-confidence vote and then storms to victory in the resulting election, he makes the Cabinet predominately Thatcherist.
 Fox resigns over health concerns, the resulting leadership election leads to Jeremy Hunt's victory.

 Churchill decides to retire early after his stroke.
 Eden decides against holding an early election and it ends up falling in the middle of a foreign policy crisis involving the Suez Canal (not exactly like OTL, but similar). The government has lost credibility and loses the election. However, scepticism over a second round of nationalisation means people are voting more against Eden than for Attlee, and the Liberals consequently benefit, winning 18 seats.
 During Attlee's second premiership, new Conservative leader Harold Macmillan changed the name of the party to the New Democratic Party (as he wanted to in OTL). The National Liberals merged into the new party, while the Ulster Unionists balked and sat as a separate parliamentary grouping from then on. The NDP's leaders would be elected by leadership elections like Labour rather than the Conservative Party's previous smoke-filled room process.
 Bevan was the victorious candidate of the Left in the leadership contest after Attlee retired, but soon fell ill and resigned after only 13 months in power. He was nonetheless responsible for a few nationalisations that most people thought went too far.
 Greenwood defeated Gaitskell in the leadership contest, the Labour Left seeming unconcerned by public opposition to its policies. He went on to lose the 1961 election.
 Macmillan, like OTL, was misdiagnosed with cancer (but in '64 rather than '63) and retired. Despite Macmillan's opposition, Rab Butler won the first NDP leadership contest to become his successor.
 Butler's death in a plane crash led to the institution of parliamentary succession laws, with the Lord President of the Council, Lord Hailsham, temporarily taking over while a new leadership election could be held.
 The New Democrats suffered from incumbency fatigue, but Labour were still in the clutches of the paleoleft and failed to catch the imagination of young people as Wilson managed OTL. The result was a hung parliament, with the Liberals (having recovered over the past few elections) now possessing 40 MPs. Heath formed a surprisingly cosy coalition with Liberal leader Jeremy Thorpe.
 As Lord President, Foot became temporary PM after Crosland's death under the rules established by the Macmillan government. Foot however violated protocol by trying to contest the Labour leadership election while Acting PM, which turned off some moderates and allowed Roy Jenkins to win, despite his disagreements with the Croslandites.
 For the 1989 election, the two parties decided on a formal electoral pact.
 After Gould won re-election in 1998, the New Democrats and Liberals decided on a formal merger.

Below you can see an 'electoral college' map I did for the ASB Electoral Systems thread--I simply gave each 'state' an electoral college vote equal to how many hundred thousand people live there, rounded up. NB these population figures are for 2009. Obviously this wouldn't be how it's worked out in a UK+USA scenario but it gives you a rough idea of the population balance.

 Eden renames the Imperials, the Conservatives. He does this to bring the Imperials into the 20th century. Eden is re-elected after winning the Suez War. But he loses the general election due to the limited nuclear exchange between the US, the USSR and Spain in 1962.
 Butler's Reconstruction government helps to rebuild the UK as well as providing aid to the US and her allies, Britain had not been affected due to the fact that they remained a powerful 'third way' between the Communist USSR and Spain and the Democratic US. Butler resigns saying his work his done, when he dies in 1986, he will be given a state funeral emulating Churchill, Disraeli, Lloyd George, Attlee and so many others.
 Wilson wins, but he forced to make a coalition with the Socialists. He is forced to resign due to increasing unpopularity. This is due to heavy industrial action in the winter of 1969.
 Technically, Callaghan did not lead a Socialist government, he lead a Liberal – Socialist coalition, so the earlier statement still applies. He lost the election due to the Winter of Discontent in 1970.
 Heath is forced to make a coalition with the fledgeling SDP. His government falls over Northern Ireland in 1974.
 William's SDP wins the resulting election but they are forced to make a shaky coalition to get a slim majority. The coalition splits over joining the European Community whose current members include Germany, France, Benelux, Poland and Italy.
 Williams's second government forms the World Economic Alliance made up from the UK, the US, Portugal and the Commonwealth as a rival to the EC and the Leningrad Pact.
 Benn short government falls after a failed referendum on whether Britain should be a republic.
 Steel is shot and killed by an Argentinian nationalist just before the start of the South Sea War between Argentina and Spain on one side and the WEA on the other.
 The Lord Wilson is appointed First Lord by the King, he will be the last FL from the Lords. Wilson calls an election after the Argentinian victory.
 Healy wins riding the victory platform, but the Great Recession of 1986 and the Great Storm of 1987 cause a loss at the next election.
 Affectionately know as 'Jack' Major, he lost the election due to the explosion of the USSR and the economic crises that followed.
 The resurrected Radicals come to power over growing segregation between ethnic minorities. Powell forcibly deports many ethnic groups, this causes an incredible amount of race riots and the 1995 riot ends with the public lynching Powell and his cabinet. William Hague, the Leader of the Opposition, asks the King to dissolve Parliament and he gladly accepts.
 Even though Hague has a huge majority he forms a Reconciliation National Government, this government offers to bring all of the deported people back to Britain. He is elevated to the House of Lords after calling an election. He would stay on as Deputy Prime Minister in each Conservative government to date.
 Blair wins a huge majority but loses the next election over rising fuel prices due to a mounting number of oil embargoes from Arab states.
 In 2003, the US and WEA invade the Arab countries to prices of petrol reaching £2.50 a litre, Kennedy's government doesn't support this, but the public do. Numerous protests ending with an anthrax attack in Parliament and Kennedy's death lead to a election.
 Blair joins the war and it is quickly won, Britain is given a colony of fairly large size and the oil/money rolls in. He is killed by anti-Imperialist protesters outside parliament.
 After the world economy collapses in 2008 (when America defaulted) Clegg becomes fairly unpopular as he fails to take advantage of the fact that Britain is now the biggest economy in the world. As unemployment in Britain reaches 30% he is skinned alive by angry protestors who force an election.
 Fox's government brings back a booming economy, un-employment falls drastically, the Royal Navy is enlarged, the Army is enlarged, and Britain keeps it's place as the premier economic power. Britain sets sail into it's new destiny, with China, Russia and America in a civil war, the WEA keeps afloat Britain's select allies. The year is 0 PB (Pax Britannia) or 2014 AD and Fox is set to get another term...
